Place all ingredients, except cacao nibs, into a high-powered blender like a Vitamix.
Start on low and then gradually take to high and run for 1-3 minutes or until the ingredients are completely blended.
Serve and garnish with a banana slice (optional).
Every sip of this Banana Cacao is super creamy and chocolatey. There is a lightness to the shake although the chia seeds and Eatnuts.com Cashews make it very satiating and creamy. This smoothie has the perfect amount of sweetness from the banana and agave balanced by the bitterness from the cacao.Healthy Recipes, Beverage Recipes, Cashew Recipes, Breakfast Recipes, Pie and Dessert Recipes, Spring Recipes, Summer Recipes, Vegan Recipes, Raw Recipes
